Here Comes A New Challenger

Street Fighter Zero has been removed from the Yellow Cute, and in its place is the awesome Street Fighter III 2nd Impact: Giant Attack.  The board is revision 970930. 

I have also cleaned the marquee holder with Novus and added some art.

MVS Recent Additions Part 1 – Blazing Star, Last Blade 2 and Metal Slug 5

I’ve gone a bit MVS crazy lately.  Here are some pictures of recent additions to my MVS collection.  I’m very pleased to get hold of Last Blade 2 English Kit.  It appears that during 98-99 SNK was focusing on the ill fated Hyper Neo Geo and MVS Kits had a small print run, other than Metal Slug and King of Fighters.

Last Blade 2, Matching Serial # 004272

Metal Slug 5, Matching Serial # 002384

P&O Pride of Burgundy

On a recent ferry crossing from Dover to Calais I was pleasantly surprised to find an arcade onboard.

The last time I made the ferry crossing was about twenty odd years ago on a school trip to France, and I remember being disappointed that they only had one game onboard - P.O.W.: Prisoners Of War, by SNK.  I wasn’t a fan of this game, maybe I’ll give it another go to see if it fares any better today.

It was good to see Daytona USA 2 and Time Crisis II, but it does seem a bit of a missed opportunity not having Deadstorm Pirates!
